I looked at the calendar and was astonished!
No, it's not the numbers 2-0-1-1 on the top that amazed me, although I still don't know how a year could have passed in the blink of an eye.
What surprised me was the number of weeks that I have been sick. Tomorrow will be the end of the 5th week that I have been sick with a cold and/or the flu!
That is astonishing!
I did have about 3 days in the middle of one of those weeks that I felt well enough to go out to lunch with Doug. Remember, I included that picture of the yummy food on our table?
(Mmmm…I could go for a bowl of that soup right about now!)
It has been a long run for me. I am tired of being sick. Just yesterday, I started to feel almost "human" again. The coughing is abating and my sinuses are clearing.
So, I am thankful today on Tuesday that I am feeling better, and will be, Lord willing, leaving the house today for some time out!
However, Isaac has only been sick since the Thursday before Christmas, and he is still doing poorly. Yesterday, he shocked me by having not one, but TWO, short grand mal seizures first thing in the morning!
He has also been running a low-grade temp for the past 2 days. So it's back to the doctor for him today.
Yeah, that's why I'm getting out of the house today – a trip to the doctor for Isaac.
But, I will take it and be thankful that I'm able to join them for the trip.
(I also have a Michael's gift card burning a hole in my pocket, so I just might get in a little shopping as well!)
